NBA Players React to Damian Lillard's CLUTCH Game 5 Performance

Adjust Comment Print

The All-Star point guard, who scored 50 points, drilled a three-point shot from almost 40 feet away to clinch the playoff series 4-1 and advance to the next round.

Damian Lillard's 37-foot shot to eliminate the Oklahoma City Thunder was seen by nearly everybody yesterday and let's just say the aftermath of it all was pretty interesting.

And he also took a fun shot at Paul George, who called the shot a bad shot after the game.

"For him to say that's a bad shot, I mean, that's just kinda being a poor sport".

Officials from the party's committee of MPs met on Tuesday to discuss the plans but the meeting was said to have been inconclusive.

"Yeah, that's a bad shot", George, who finished with 36 points in the loss, said. On the other, the numbers do say that's generally not a great shot and if someone hits it, you're best to tip your cap, shrug, and accept the consequences. "That was having the last word", said Lillard of his shot, according to the Washington Post's Ben Golliver. "We live with that". In other words: Deep-space Dame appears to be as good of an option as the typical National Basketball Association 3-point look, or even an average Paul George 3-point attempt.

Lillard responded on Twitter by simply saying "lol".

Dudes like Lillard, Curry and Trae Young are special because their range extends far beyond what was normal or acceptable even five years ago.

The Trail Blazers now move on to the second round of the Western Conference playoffs, where they'll take on the victor of the series between the Denver Nuggets and San Antonio Spurs. Oklahoma City was defeated by the Utah Jazz in six games in the first round of the postseason past year despite a very strong regular season showing, and lost to the Rockets in five games back in 2016-17.
